    Hi all

    My name is Christine, and I have been quilting for 17 years this past April

    I am married to Paul (also a quilter), we celebrated 9 years in February.

    Have 10 children, 4 boys, 6 girls, aged from 2 to 23 years.

    When I'm not quilting, I have 2 marine aquariums that take my time, and I also knit (mostly socks)

    I have started quilting my own quilts on a Gammill Short Arm set-up, and I have very recently taken on a UFO to finish for the sister of a friend

    I belong to one guild and 4 friendship groups, and have more UFO's than I care to count :roll:

    Oh, and I prefer hand work to machine, but I do realise that if I want to finhs half of what I start, I HAVE to machine piece and quilt :D

    ....and Paul is a one-project-at-a-time guy. working on Redwork Presidents, and looking to start a Baltimore when that is done!!

    Welcome, Christine, from Colorado, US. This is a great place to come for ideas, inspiration and motivation. Lots of wonderful people. How wonderful to be able to quilt with your husband! I think that would be fun.

    Come back often!
